In a rather not so good news, Ghanaian actor and presenter Chris Attoh has officially confirmed his spilt from his wife of two years , Nigerian actress Damilola Adegbite.
Dearest Dami, Our anniversary is a celebration of the mistakes we made in the past, memories we are making today and all the happiness that is in store for us in the future. I don’t know where I would be, if you hadn’t supported me this far. if it weren’t for you, Our house would never have become a home, Our child would never have understood the meaning of family without you. I continue to experience true love because of you. Today, as we celebrate our anniversary, I just want to say thanks for everything baby. These past years, I pray I have been the kind of guy that an amazing woman like you truly deserves. Today is the perfect moment to say Thank You for all the sacrifices you’ve made to keep the boat of our lives afloat. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to discover that a beautiful wife with a beautiful heart equals a beautiful life. Happy anniversary sweetheart, and a happy Valentines Day. Nii.
The couple who were the envy of both Ghanaians and Nigerians alike shared such a beautiful connection which was why none of us belived there were issues with the marriage when rumours broke about a divorce in March 2017.
However, the truth has finally come out of the horses on mouth after Chris spilled the beans in an interview with Bella Naija. Quizzed about how he and Dami juggle their marriage, son and work, he responded with the shcoking news. He said:
I believe throughout our marriage, It has probably been one of the most challenging things we have ever done, however, the key word is balance. At times when we both had to work, our parents would be there to hold the fort. God bless family because they were and still are very supportive.
However, since the divorce, we are obviously now reworking things to create a new balance between work, spending time with and raising our son.
Dami is a wonderful woman and an amazing mother. Despite our differences, she and I will always be friends. So more than anything we will find ways to continue to make sure that Brian can still have a balanced upbringing filled with love and support. Both our families have been and are still very supportive in helping us take care of our son Brian when we can’t be there due to work.
And the heartwrenching news has taken their fans, friends, colleagues in the industry and the whole of Africa by surprise. Several of them have shared their candid thoughts on the issue via social media and here’s what they had to say.

The couple got married on the 14th of February 2015 after the birth of their son Brian Attoh a year earlier. They have also starred alongside in movies and series such as Six Hours to Christmas and Tinsel. Damilola Adegbite has not issued any statement over the issue and it is also unclear if Damilola has officially relocated from Ghana after the divorce.
